The wood items in the backline collection of Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. utilize a natural reactive process which gives them their distinctive dark finish. This unique technique makes use of the tannic acid inherent in white oak to develop a deep, durable, food-safe dye. Some variation in color should be expected. Natural dyes will wear over time, developing a rich patina that is special to the object and how it is being used.
Materials: White Oak
Size: 8”W - 20"L
For care, we recommend hand washing with soap and water. Do not use any ammonia or harsh chemicals. It's essential to oil these boards, especially in the beginning. As they're used, they will require less oiling. It should be noted that highly acidic foods such as lemons will affect the natural dye. Some color may bleed initially.
